If you've been to the Law School's website lately, you may have noticed that just before the New Year, we quietly rolled out a new look for the site's home page. Highlights of the new design include:
- a striking new emphasis on the photographs accompanying our featured stories
- a streamlined and simplified information architecture
- more real estate devoted to publicizing our faculty's research
- removal of the old "News," "Audio," "Video" sections in favor of a "News & Media" column, which will aggregate not only those content types, but also blogs hosted both on our site (e.g. Accolades & Achievements) and elsewhere (the D'Angelo Library Blog, the Becker-Posner Blog, etc.) and other types of content that are updated regularly (such as The Record and Faculty Research).
Here in the Commmunications office, we're very happy with the changes. We feel that the new page, designed by Rogue Element, Inc. (the same firm that designed the previous home page and the rest of the site) continues to give visitors a glimpse of the vibrancy of the Law School, while making it easier for them to find the information they're seeking. But we want to know what you think -- please let us know in the comments.
